“Patent Search is a wonderful tool for us.”
Leeo Gao, Intellectual Property Attorney at WABCO Asia Pacific
Find what you need, the way you want to.
With its different search features, Patent Search adapts to different search strategies. No matter which one you choose, you’re going to get the job done—the right way.
Smart Search: the easy way
For the first time, user-friendly isn’t just a buzzword. Enter the natural language in the search bar and let Patent Search extract the keywords, identify the synonyms, and add in the related terms.
Advanced Search: the granular approach
Search through dozens of patent data fields and combine the results with Boolean operators to refine the results. Once you’re done, export the query history to an Excel file—because no one wants to tackle the same task twice.
Semantic Search: fill in the cracks
Semantic Search goes beyond keywords and grasps the meaning of what you enter into the search box—be it the title, abstract, or a claim—to spot patents from across IP5 and WIPO that disclose similar inventions or technologies.
Remove subjectivity with Quality and Value Rankings—a Patentcloud exclusive.
Traditional patent evaluation is often based on subjective metrics and fails to answer questions such as Is this patent worth my attention? Patentcloud’s Quality and Value Rankings, backed by the experience of 600 IP veterans and machine learning algorithms developed ad-hoc, provide a unified approach.
Scared of missing out?
We introduced these features to reduce the risk of leaving essential patent documents out.
Corporate Affiliation Search
Apple has 24 affiliates worldwide. Tesla has 287. How can you be sure to include them all in your searches? Try the Corporate Affiliation Search function, which groups hierarchically affiliates, subsidiaries, and name variations under a handy corporate tree.
Similar to Smart Search, but more powerful. The same concept can be described through different words: reduce time spent on keyword brainstorming by picking from suggested variations of the terms in your search query with Patent Search.
Don’t know where to start? Take the first step by focusing on a specific technical field: you can always zoom in once you have a clearer picture. Key in the code directly, or find the most relevant subclasses through an expandable tree.
Discover what’s going on within the portfolio—before it’s too late.
Patent Search doesn’t force you to rethink your entire workflow: export up to 200,000 patents to an Excel file and use them as you wish.
Easily compare two or more patents side-by-side for an in-depth examination of the details.
Am I looking for the right patents? A chart is worth a thousand words—or patents, in this case. Get a visual overview of the search results to know right away if you’re on track.
